The Unguidebook Sydney & Melbourne: A Sense of Place in Oz
Sydney has a seemingly endless waterfront where you can discover the city’s maritime roots and current love of anything that floats. Any one of the city’s idyllic bays, coves or nearby seawater pools will beckon you for a cool-down. Who can resist a stroll along the vibrant Circular Quay and central business district or easy day hike overlooking breathtaking scenery just minutes from downtown? Dine your way through Melbourne’s dynamic food scene from the city’s eclectic markets to her world-class restaurants in the distinctive laneways and cultural areas of Little Italy, Chinatown and the Greek Precinct. Then take a drive to see the colorful beachside community of Brighton and the spectacular Great Ocean Road. There’s so much to see and do in these two amazing cities.
